Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

Taking a step back to the opening post yes, they have over a million 'signatures' on what is after all only a 'click and collect' petition, but that is only a drop in the wide Atlantic that separates us from the States and the multi millions that have not voted. At best and like Brexit it's an even split - and has anybody noticed the almost complete media biased bandwagon against Trump?

Let's not listen to what the telly tells us, let's not be part of Brexit part two, and let's not be among that army of tiny voices driven by the wind of social media -  because that's what it's starting to feel like.

I don't like the guy, but then I never voted for him and neither most of us here, so let's render unto Caesar until those Senators stab him in the back as they surely will.

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Donald Trump should make a State Visit to the United Kingdom.

only just started but I wonder how long it will go up at a fair rate https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/178844 and over 120,000 at present

Richard Littlejohn has a good take on the petition.

You haven't 'signed' anything @artmo, you've just taken part in yet another knee jerk click and collect social media fiasco and yes, we've all been there Wink

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

With the growing unrest over the American President, I wonder how long before we hear a security serviceman shout "Donald! Duck!".

The whole thing has a whiff of hysteria.
